So I discovered this guy while I was scouring the internet for Mona Lisa remakes. His name is Marco Pece and he recreates famous paintings/art with Lego. AWESOME.

I’d say The Scream is my favorite one. Check out more here.

So apparently it’s very common for people to want to make something out of something else. And many of these people have chosen to take the well traveled Mona Lisa route.

This baby is made up of 4,000 cups of coffee. Watch about it here.

This here Mona Lisa was made by a team in Osaka using 320,000 old train tickets from the Nankai Namba station.

This recreation was made entirely out of motherboard parts + frame.

This one’s made with hamburger grease. WHY?

Grass! Obvi.

Lego Mona Lisa! By Marco Pece.

Tofu Mona Lisa by Ju Duoqi.

5,184 spools of thread. By Devorah Sperber

I have a soft spot for websites that filter overwhelming amounts of information based on personal preference (ex:  I also have a soft spot for sites names that begin with the first consonant repeated four times, so naturally I got really excited when I stumbled upon fffflickr.  It is pretty simple and pretty frickn’ sweet.  You just click on a photos you like, and then it gives you more photos you’ll probably like as well.

Bleeding Album Art

Hubero Kororo designed this interactive CD cover for the band Uceroz. When you open the CD packaging on the side, ink is set free and bleeds into the cover of the CD. I really like this idea.” –

The Knife is set to release their original soundtrack to an opera by Danish performance group HOTEL PRO FORMA based on Charles Darwin’s The Origin of Species.The opera is called Yesterday, In a Year and has already had performances in Denmark, Sweden, and Germany. The album is in collaboration with a German music/dance troupe called Mt. Sims and the Berlin-based musician and video-performance artist Planningtorock (who rules, by the way…).

Here is The Knife, Planningtorock, and Mt Sims’ first release from the album The Colouring of Pigeons (mp3). ELEVEN AMAZING MINUTES!

And here is the trailer for the opera, that I really really hope comes to America soon.

So neon, So awesome.

So you all have probably seen sites like FML and Fail Blog

However, did you know that such places exist where one can observe and appreciate total strangers and their successes, big and small?

Check out and Succeed Blog! Watch your peers poop rainbows and slap high-fives with puppies and smile because the world is such a wonderful place.
